    This is going to be a total nightmare (traffic-wise), though it is certainly understandable why it is going to occur.

    I'll be "outside the Beltway" on Thursday - that's for sure!!

    The comments above reflect my personal opinion as a private citizen, ordinary motorist and all-around good guy.

    The aforementioned advice should not be construed to represent any type of professional opinion, legal counsel or other type of instruction with regard to traffic laws, judicial proceedings or official agency policy.

      Well now, this explains the cryptic sign I saw in Woodbridge tonight. It was alternating between, "911 MAJOR EVENT" and "USE MASS TRANSIT" My weary brain first thought there had been some form of attack that I had yet to hear about.

      This makes much more sense, and would be the obvious meaning to the rested.
      Magistrate: "Do you have any other pending charges?"
      Drunk: "Well there's this thing where the cops said I spit blood on them."
      Me: "Wait a minute, that was me!"
      Drunk: "Oh... now you like me even less."

        Yeah, poor choice of words for that sign. Why not just say "On Sept. 11"? People are easily frightened as it is!

          Just make sure that you aren't going up 95 to DC if you're coming from Woodbridge! Traffic is going to REALLY suck! Fortunately, I live 5 min away from my job; however, my supervisor lives somewhere in Maryland and has to take BW Parkway coming down 495 or something like that...he's going to have a lot of fun...
